  MARKETING AUSSIE FILMS: WHY THEY DON'T MAKE MONEY
The bulk of contemporary Australian films are not the types the majority of Australian (or international) audiences will pay to see, and filmmakers are not in tune with what consumers and audiences want, claims producer and consumer marketer Martin Walsh. Walsh’s comments coincide with the public forum organised by Metro Screen (6.15pm, Oct 22, 2009, Chauvel Cinema) which explores this very subject.
  MOVIES ON DEMAND – DIGITAL T$UNAMI IGNORED?
Burning your own high quality DVD of movies downloaded via broadband is now a legal, technical and commercial reality but Hollywood is still in a state of denial – as was the music industry for too long; to beat movie piracy, a low cost legal alternative would help –simultaneously providing a viable new distribution outlet for Australian (and other independent) producers as well as Hollywood, reports Andrew L. Urban.
  MYSTERIOUS SKIN – CHEAP CENSORSHIP
In an attempt to have the film refused classification (banned), The Australian Family Association (AFA) and the Festival of Light want a review of the R 18+ classification for Mysterious Skin, and asked for the review fee to be waived; they were refused. So they have used the South Australian Attorney General Michael Atkinson (again) as the conduit to force a request through Federal AG Phillip Ruddock - at public expense. Without any of them having seen the film.
